Nominations for the 3rd annual Mashable Open Web Awards are now open. I voted today for @Twestival in the Best Non-Profit use of Twitter. I encourage you to do the same if you feel anyway inclined in that direction.

I did find it mildly amusing to see tweets of people nominating themselves in categories such as “Twitter User of the Year” and “Most Interesting Twitter user to Follow”. Not that it bothers me, I admire shamelessness, I truely do.

However as @mokuska pointed out to me the Mashable Open Web Awards positively encourage self promotion

Quote: “We encourage self-promotion and all promotion. After all, this is the social media edition of the Open Web Awards. Below is the tool to preset your link so you can share, tweet, email the link to whomever.”

So I thought I’d give it a go and see how far I could get masquerading as a Celebrity. Thanks to @mokuska for my first nomination as “Best Celebrity to Follow” - I’m now off to to shamelessly add my self nomination.

If you fancy joining me in this *social ego experiement* JOIN IN.
